Your friend's a genius
She even made up
The spare room bed for us
But I can't stay here indefinitely
I've definitely got somewhere else
I'd rather be
And that's the thing I haven't told you yet...

Here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the serious bit
Here comes the serious bit

Your friends say we have fun
And film stars they have fun
I'd like to just for once

But the Marquis de Sade had it hard
And even Cleopatra found it unnatural sometimes
And that's the thing I haven't told you yet...

Here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the serious bit
Here comes the serious bit

I could be a shoulder to cry on
Or I could be a body to lie on
But don't ask me for more than that
